7.3 to 6.7 swap

Well guys ive done all i really want to do to my 7.3 so im doing a 2011 6.7 powerstroke engine swap, yes i know its alot of work but i have EVERYTHING needed for this swap and a shop that is willing to do it!!! Rite now my 7.3 has the following mods which ill post at the end of my post which have less than 1,000miles not happy with the over power truck made and was advised to either go to a built 7.3 or a cummins swap but with the deal im getting on this 2011 6.7 with only 11,000miles on it i think its the way to go for me and ill probally be faster than i am now with new motor being stock which wont stay stock at time of going in!!!!! What are your thoughts and please no bashing on my idea of getting rid of the great 7.3 for the 6.7!!

Current mods which ill be selling at time of swap!!
200/30 swamps injectors
Ts chip with swamps tune
Swamps idm
Afe stage2 intake
Stealth srp1.1
Afe blade runner manifolds
Aeromotive regulated return with bowl delete
Complete fuel system mounted on frame rail
38r turbo

All parts were installed and have less than 1000miles on!!!!

THOUGHTS, haha i know i must be crazy but i think itll be a game changer for sure!!!

I would say if your looking for big power for your big "assed" truck in your sig then you might have to take the 7.3 out. But I would assume you could get some good HP out of that 7.3 if you took the money that you would spend on the swap on the 73.

That said I wouldn't use the mexican 6.7L, I would do the Cummins but that's personal preference.
Would like to hear more on the process and how it turns out, good luck!

Thanks guys, yes ive been told to rebuild the 7.3 but ive have nothing but issues in the past with the 7.3 and ive worked out a deal buy a complete rolling chassis turn key for my swap and i feel and been advised by the guys a maryland diesel that aftermarket turbo and tunes with a few other mods would make the 6.7 a beast and im doing dash, cluster EVERYTHING!!!!

Yea, there's more to do to the current motor, but dang, it gets crazy at that point. We all know where it's gonna go. Twin HPOPs, twin turbos probably, big fuel, built trans.
It's all new with a 6.7.
